    All chicks came from Ideal in a St. Run Bantam Assortment. All are single comb and clean legged. I have narrowed down the breeds to Modern, Old English, Japanese, Dutch, and maybe a White Leghorn. I have also eliminated a whole bunch of colors from each. Its just for fun, doesnt matter what they are. Gender doesnt matter at this point either. Beware, Ideal Hatchery has about 60 different varieties of Old English. I will only plst what we are not sure of. Ill keep adding chicks as I get the chance. 25 in all, but 1 self blue and 1 white jap wont be pictured. Theyll be mentioned though...

    Chick 1
    my favorite, have no clue what it is, here are some guesses
    Possibilities- Buttercup Pattern, Cream Buttercup Pattern,
    Breed- OEGB?

    Okay. This will be for side notes. It will be easy to keep track of. Give your guesses on the chick varieties. I will try to get those last two chick pics in soon.
    Overall, we can eliminate these varieties from the breeds I have narrowed them down to.

    Old English
    Cannot be- Black, Birchen, Chocolate, Barred, Cuckoo, Silver Laced, Mottled, Buff, White Tailed buff, , buff laced, blue ginger, quail, blue quail, white tailed red, fawn, fawn silver, brown red, blue brassy black, golden neck, lemon blue, silver campine-pattern, golden campine-pattern, porcelain

    Dutch
    Cannot be- Black, Black Tailed Buff, Blue, Blue Red Quill,

    Japanese
    Cannot be- Black, Black Tailed buff, Black Tailed white, mottled, gray,

    Modern
    Cannot Be- Birchen, Brown Red, black, Blue, Silver Blue, Lemon Blue, Self Blue, White

    Nankin-has to be Single Combed

    If any of these could still be a possibility, feel free to say so. But im pretty sure im doing good in narrowing it down.

    Will your plans change for these birds if you know their breeds today? We would all be guessing what they are today. Let them feather out for a couple of months and things will be clearer. It seems like you have already done a good job of figuring out what they aren't.

    Well. We would really like to know which ones are which. We plan on selling a few of the more common colors and we are going on vacation soon.
    Yeah, I guess it doesnt really matter. I just wanted some quick guesses because I know a bunch of them are going to look similar when they are older. I was gonna take the pictures as they got older and make a reference book for us.
